Honoring Dawna Day

A Former BUMFS Employee

SARAH’S House is moving to a newly remodeled Keyser Main Street office.
Dawna began her journey as a Burlington social worker in 1996. Then in 2004, she advanced her career at Garrett County Department of Social Services where she continued to advocate for children. She was a proud mother of two sons and a grandmother to five grandsons that she adored. All children were the light of Dawna’s eye. She devoted her life to serving families in need. Her faith in Jesus Christ and passion for families she served made her a blessing and inspiration to everyone she met. Dawna’s presence will be deeply missed, but her legacy will never be forgotten.
We are honoring Dawna, who passed away earlier this year, by naming the new conference room after her. If you are interested in contributing to Dawna’s legacy, this would be an excellent opportunity. Those who pledge $100 or more will be added to the SARAH’S HOUSE donor wall. Donations will be used for the following:
*Conference Table- $1,500
*Conference Table Chairs (12-15) -$200 each
*Television (training purposes)-$500
Send contributions to: BUMFS; Dawna Day Conference Room; 539 New Creek Hwy.; Keyser, WV 26726

Honoring Richard "Dick" Niland

We were blessed for many years with dedicated Board of Trustees member Dick Niland. As a valued Keller Stonebraker Account Ececutive, the company wanted to do something on campus to recognize Dick's years of hard work, dedication and service.
Since he had a great love for basketball, an outdoor basketball court was a "No Brainer." Dick played the fast moving game while attending Piedmont High School. In his later years, he enjoyed coaching the "older" Piedmont guys.
We also want to thank Nathan Rice All Seasons Landscaping for putting on the finishing touches!
The basketball court is on our Burlington Campus where children in our residential program can enjoy it. To learn more about residential, click the link below.
